REPORT 



OF THE 



Superintendent of Public Streets, 

HIGHWAYS AND SQUARES. 



OFFICE OF THE. SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC STEEETS, \ 
HIGHWAYS AND SQUARES, 

NEW CITY HALL, July 15, 1889. ) 

To the Honorable the Board of Supervisors 

of the City and County of San Francisco: 

GENTLEMEN : In accordance with Resolution No. 2213 (Third Series), 
herewith submit my report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1889. 

There has been 5 2350-5280 miles of streets paved with basalt blocks, and 
14 598-5280 miles of sewers built, for which see annexed tables. 

Of these streets so paved 3 1122-5280 miles have been accepted by your 
Honorable Board and added to the accepted streets of this city. 

The work of improving the streets of this city heretofore accepted has pro- 
gressed, as far as was possible, with the monies appropriated for this depart- 
ment, during the past fiscal year. 1 hope to continue this work, and repave 
with basalt block, as many of these streets originally paved with cobbles, as the 
monies now appropriated for repairs on accepted streets will permit. This 
work of repaving is in my judgment the wisest and most economic course, 
all attempts to repair the cobble paved streets in that portion of the city sub- 
ject to heavy traffic is simply a waste of public money. 



The amount of sewers constructed during the past fiscal year denotes an 
improvement in the sanitary condition of the City, and also indicates its in- 
creased growth both in extent and population. This work is up to the pres- 
ent being performed without any definite plan or system, the only exception 
being that section of the city lying between Army and Channel streets and 
1 



2 REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF STREETS. 

Valencia street, and for which the City Engineer has prepared a plan. All 
sewers now being constructed within these boundaries, are built in accordance 
with his plan for that district. The outlet for most of these sewers, is through 
the Array street sewer, but the city has not as yet acquired the right of way 
over any of the intersecting streets between Mission street and Potrero av- 
enue, and Twenty-sixth and Army streets, except Bryant avenue, and only a 
small portion of the sewers in that district can be conducted to the receiving 
sewer along the street. The condemnation of the land necessary to extend 
the streets within the points named to Army street is now a sanitary necess- 
ity, and I respectfully request that your Honorable Board commence pro- 
ceedings to so extend them. 

I hope that your Honorable Board will in the near future have a system or 
plan prepared for the further extension of the sewers. This is now more 
than ever necessary, as the increasing growth of the city requires that the 
sewering of the outlying districts be projected not in fractional parts with 
no relation to each other either in shape or capacity, but according to some 
definite plan. The random manner in which, sewers have heretofore been 
constructed will yet cause serious loss and damage, as every day new sewers 
are being built, which have to discharge into others, entirely inadequate to 
carry oft the sewage and storm waters conveyed to them. To provide a par- 
tial outlet for sewers so overcharged it will be necessary to construct auxil- 
iary or relieving sewers, to divert a portion of the sewage to other channels. 

PAVING. 

The quantity of basalt block pavement shows a large increase over the 
previous year. In the fhst half of the past year there was a scarcity of this 
material, but I am now informed that the supply is ample and as a conse- 
quence the cost of fetich pavement has fallen a little during the past six 
months. 

During my incumbency of this office I have endeavored to have this class 
of work performed in a durable and substantial manner, and 1 am satisfied 
that the streets so paved during that period will not cost the city any money 
for repairs for many years to come. 

MACADAMIZED STREETS. 

During the past year there has been 19 4627-5280 miles of macadamized 
streets constructed in this city. 

Although this form of street improvement is open to great objection, yet 
in certain localities it is the only form of improvement which it is possible 
to obtain. In many cases where new streets are opened and are ordered im- 
proved, the work of grading if added to a more expensive improvement would 
exceed one-half the assessed value of thn property affected aud therefore could 
not be perfoimed unless the city paid the difference in cost, and in other 
cases the property owners would not agree to construct any other pavement. 



REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF STREETS. 3 

The great objection to macadam is that there cannot be any provision made 
according to law to water or repair the streets so improved, in the specifi- 
cations for such work adopted by your Honorable Board. I have as far as 
possible sought to effect an improvement in the manner of doing this class of 
work and have inserted a clause requiring the contractors in all cases to water 
macadamized streets for a period of seven days after completion . 

BITUMINOUS BOCK PAVEMENT. 

The amount of bituminous rock pavement laid down during the past fiscal 
year (1 28-5280 miles) is set forth in annexed tables, almost all of this work 
has been performed by property owners by their own choice. In many cases 
where your Honorable Board ordered streets and crossings paved with basalt 
blocks, the owners of the property liable for costs of such improvements elect- 
ed to enter into private contract with parties engaged in laying bituminous 
rock and have the street in front of their premises so paved. The cleanli- 
ness and uniformity of this pavement, and the little noise made by traffic 
over it, caused this preference, even though they were aware your Honorable 
Board have not yet decided to accept it. 

The cost of repairs on all streets heretofore paved with this material has 
been borne by the contractors who have laid it down, by arrangement between 
them and property owners, but when properly laid on a concrete foundation 
the repairs needed are few and can be performed at a very small expense. 

The experience of other cities both in this country and in Europe, in which 
similar material has been used, shows that the cost of repairs, on streets so 
paved compares favorably with the cost of repairs on streets paved with any 
other material. In some cases the expense did not exceed two cents per 
square yard per year, of course this applies to streets not subject to extraor- 
dinarily heavy traffic, and in many cases it is asserted that no repairs have 
been needed for a period of ten years after construction. 

The cost of repairing the basalt, granite and cobble pavements laid in this 
city prior to 1886 will average ten cents per square yard per year. 

In my judgment this material, for economy, ease of travel and cleanliness, 
excels any other form of pavement ever laid down on streets of this city, and 
if the question of its durability was permanently established, it should be 
used on all streets west of Stockton and southwest of Eighth streets, which 
are not subject to heavy traffic. 

TBAFFIO OVER STREETS. 

I desire to call the attention of your Honorable Board to the extraordinary 
wear the streets paved with stone blocks in the business portion of the city 
are subject to. I find that the better condition streets are put in, the 
heavier the loads they are subjected to. I have been informed on good au- 
thority, that loads exceeding twenty thousand pounds have been conveyed 
over them on trucks the tires of whose wheels in no case exceeded five inches 



4 REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF STREETS. 

in width. This subjects the roadway over which such loads travel to a pres- 
sure exceeding one thousand pounds to the square inch. 

No roadway no matter what material is used therein, or how well construc- 
ted, can long withstand such traffic, therefore I earnestly request your Hon- 
orable Board to so amend Section 11, General Order 1587, as to prohibit the 
hauling of such excessive loads unless the tires of the wheels of the trucks 
or drays on which they are carried are of a width commensurate with the 
load. 

SIDE SEWEES. 

One of the most destructive trials the paved and macadamized streets of 
this city are subject to, is the construction and repair of side sewers. Under 
the provisions of General Order 1588, any person on deposit of $20.00 in this 
office, can obtain a permit to dig up the street and cut into the main sewer. 
No care which it is possible for me to exercise, can insure the proper recon- . 
struction of the streets so disturbed, I therefore suggest that said order be 
amended so as to have all such work performed by this department, and have 
the deposit graduated to insure payment for the work. 

VAN NESS AVENUE. 

During the past year the unfinished portion of Van Ness Avenue between 
Market and Yallejo streets has been completed. I have heretofore prepared 
by direction of your Honorable Board a diagram of the lands to be condemned 
under the provisions of an act of the Legislature approved March 6th, 1889, 
for the extension of Van Ness Avenue from Vallejo street to the waters of 
the Bay, also a description of the boundaries of the lands to be assessed for 
benefits and damages. It is to be hoped that this most important work will 
be performed as quickly as possible as it will open up a portion of this city 
whose progress has heretofore been retarded for want of this improvement. 

In this connection I desire to call your attention to the proposition made 
by Gen. Miles regarding the extension of Van Ness Avenue and the further 
work of constructing a driveway from that avenue to the Presidio Reserva- 
tion. That gentlemen informed me that if the property owners along the 
line of Lombard street would sewer and curb that street he would grade and 
macadamize the roadway thereof from Van Ness Avenue to the Reservation 
line. I need scarcely say that the work herein proposed to be done, and 
which Gen. Miles has volunteered to perform free of any cost to the people, 
together with the opening of Van Ness Avenue, would enhance the value of 
property in that section of the city, and give an -impetus to improvements 
therein, which it cannot have until this work is accomplished. 

COUNTY EOADS. 

The appropriations for repairs on the County roads for the past fiscal 
year, $8000, has limited the amount of work which could be done. 



REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF STREETS. 5 

The increasing travel over that portion known as the Mission road com- 
pels continuous repairs thereto. It is the main highway running southerly 
from the city. Almost all the farm produce to supply our city passes over it. 
I have therefore been compelled to keep this road in good condition, and it 
is now in better condition than many of the macadamized streets of this city. 
The remainder of the County roads not being subject to much traffic do not 
require continuous repairs, but their condition is fair, no further improvement 
being possible with the amount appropriated. 

In conclusion I thank your Honorable Board for the aid and courtesy ex- 
tended to me during the past year, and submit this report for your consider- 
ation and judgment.

COUNTY CLERK'S REPORT. 



To the Honorable the Board of Supervisors 

Of the City and County of San Francisco : 

GENTLEMEN: In submitting for your consideration my Annual Report 
showing the transactions of the County Clerk's Office for the year ending 
June 30, 1889, I desire to call your attention to the general increase of bus- 
iness in all of the departments, consequent upon the steady growth of the city. 
This is particularly shown in the declarations of intentions filed, the certifi- 
cates of naturalization issued, marriage licenses granted, suits commenced in 
Superior Court, appeals and abstracts from Justices Court, judgments rendered 
and the increase of fees received. In no instance, however, is the increase so 
noticeable as in the Probate Department of the Superior Court, and it is more 
marked there because of the pressing need of space and conveniences for dis- 
patching the rapidly increasing biisiness of the Department. 

Desiring to present to your Honorable Board the condition of this Depart- 
ment, so far as it relates to my office, I submit for your consideration a few 
comparisons with the business of former years. 

In the Probate Department every paper filed must be entered upon the 
Register, and in addition thereto all claims allowed. Decrees and orders 
made bonds approved, letters testamentary or of administration, guar- 
dianship, etc., must be fully recorded, and all decrees and orders spread in 
full upon the minutes of the Court. 

Let me give in brief a comparison of the work of the Probate Court from 
its practical establishment in 1849 to 1880, the date of the establishment of 
the Superior Court, with that of the business of the Probate Department 
from that date (1880) to the present time. 

From 1849 to 1880, a period of nearly forty-two years, there were used thir- 
teen Registers, containing 9,582 cases. Since the organization of the Super- 
ior Court in 1880, nearly thirteen registers have been used, containing a total 
of 8,667 cases, nearly as many in the last nine years as in the preceding 
forty- two. 

Eighty-one minute books were required for recording orders, decrees, etc., 



COUNTY CLERK'S REPORT. 47 

from 1849 to 1880, and since that time the number of volumes used is ninety- 
nine. 

During the six months ending December 31, 1888, there were filed 531 new 
cases, and the fees received amounted to $8,744,00 not including the Library 
fee of one dollar exacted in each case filed. 

For the six months ending June 30, 1889, there were 601 new cases filed 
and the fees received amounted to $10,099.95 in excess of the Library fee, 
showing an increase of seventy new cases and $1,355.75 as fees. 

The accommodations for records are already overcrowded and will soon be 
entirely inadequate. 

All available space for filing papers is nearly exhausted and the vault in use 
is more than filled, in consequence valuable papers cannot have the proper 
care and the labor of preserving them is greatly increased. 

Separate shelves and racks have had to be made for the storage of the pa- 
pers of the Blythe and other large estates. The Indexes in use are nearly 
filled and some of them are in bad condition, they will'soon have to be re- 
placed and this duty will require the supervision of an experienced person. 

When the vast amount and the importance of the business transacted in this 
Department is taken into consideration, with the accommodations necessary 
for the members of the Bar and litigants for the transaction of such business, 
your Honorable Body will find upon inquiry that the present facilities are 
entirely inadequate therefor. 

In calling your attention particularly to the needs of the Probate Depart- 
ment, I am influenced by the hope that it may assist in providing in the 
building now in course of construction apartments suitable and convenient for 
the safe keeping of its important records with proper facilities for the public 
having business therewith. 

Your obedient servant, 

WM. A. DAVIES, 
July 15, 1889. County Clerk.

ASSESSOR'S REPORT. 



ASSESSOR'S OFFICE, 
SAN FRANCISCO, .July 24 



, 1889. j 



To the Honorable the Board of Supervisors 

Of the City and County of San Francisco: 

GENTLEMEN : In compliance with Resolution No. 2213, of your Honorable 
Body, I herewith submit my annual report as City and County Assessor, for 
the year ending June 30, 1889. On the first Monday of June last, I delivered 
to John A. Russell, Clerk of your Board, the Assessment Roll of Personal 
Property, contained in seventeen volumes, amounting to $65,153,068. This 
is au increase over last year of $3,231,439. 

On June 29, 1889, I also delivered to you the Real Estate Assessment Roll,, 
contained in forty-four volumes, amounting to $240,819,652, of which $172,- 
248,720 was assessment against land and $68,570,932 was the assessment on 
improvements located thereon. 

In addition to the above I also delivered one volume, containing Assess- 
ment for the payment of principal and interest on Dupont Street bonds, 
two volumes of Real Estate Indexes, and forty-seven Block Baoks of Mips 
of all the lands and subdivisions of Real Estate within the City and County 
of San Francisco. 

The Real Estate Assessment Roll shows an increase of $29,351,665 over 
last year, of which $25,001,927 is on land, and $4,349,738 on improvements. 
The last three have been years of great prosperity throughout the State ; it 
may not be too much to say that these years have witnessed the greatest ma- 
terial progress enjoyed by the Pacific Coast during the last decade. 

The prosperity of this city has its foundation laid in the healthy and uni- 
form advance of improvement of this State and coast. 

The great addition to the Assessment Roll of the Real Estate of the city 
is an index of and a result flowing from the steady and continued growth 
and property increase of the Pacific slope. 

The section of the city embraced within the district lying North of Cali- 
fornia, East of Stockton streets and to the bay, has not advanced beyond last 



68 ASSESSOR'S REPORT. 

year's figures. This section embraces about all of the city that had an active 
existence thirty years ago. It also includes the portion afflicted with 
the presence of the Chinese. Wherever these people settle property values 
cease to advance. All other sections of the city have advanced, in some to a 
marked degree. The Cable Railway systems are a prominent factor in en- 
hancing the land values of the sections traversed and served by them, this is 
true in a very pronounced degree of the Powell Street Railway, traversing the 
section known as Pacific Heights, lying West of Van Ness Avenue. The 
Omnibus Cable Railway has also contributed greatly to the enhancement of 
land values, in the districts South of Market street, notably, from about 
Sixth to Twenty-six streets, for blocks on either side of Howard street. 

Complaint has hitherto been made that the sasessments levied by this 
office on land in certain districts were not sufficiently high to meet the re- 
quirements of the street law known as the Vrooman Act. All street assess- 
ments are made under this law; one of its requirements is, that no assess- 
ment made for street improvement purposes shall exceed in its cost fifty cents 
on the dollar of the assessment levied by the City and County Assessor, for 
State and County Taxes. Districts lacking street improvements need not de- 
lay intended inauguration of the same. I believe the city authorities should, 
as much as possible, protect the individual tax-payer against being " improved 
out of his property," by reason of the heavy expenses incurred in grading 
and sewering large districts which do not need and cannot use the same for 
many years after, but whilst not believing in forcing improvements upon dis- 
tricts not sufficiently populated, yet, I also believe, that injustice is often 
done to a neighborhood by the factious and obstructive conduct of 
non-progressive owners of land in a section in great need of being graded 
and sewered. 

It is my belief, that the land valuations contained in the Assessment Roll 
for 1889, will admit of the inauguration of street improvements in all sections 
of the city that stand in need of them. 

It may not be out of place for me at this point, to call attention to the 
character and style of improvements erected within the last year or so. 

Business blocks are built in a manner that, though giving full scope to a 
architectural grace and beauty, never sacrifice strength and solidity. No one 
can fail to observe the great difference in the character of the structures 
erected of late years, compared to those formerly built. 

The buildings of former years were intended to subserve a temporary 
purpose, and were built regardless of either beauty or permanence, while 
those of to-day are true types of the best structures known to the period. 
This indicates the change from a past uncertainty of the present feeling 
of assured confidence in the stability of the city's future. 

I have also carefully compiled the aggregate number of Personal Property 
tax-payers, the assessed valuation of the same and the increa3e over pre- 
ceding years, which shows an astonishing improvement, both in numbers 
and values during the years 1886, '87, '88 and 1889, together with the assessed

valuation of Real Estate during the same period of time, which also shows 
a significant increase. This very marked improvement indicates the great 
magnitude of the operations of this department.

The total number of Real Estate subdivisions in the county in 18S6, was 
68,337, the total number for this year is 77,089, an increase of 8,752 subdi- 
visions in three years, or exceeding twelve per cent., involving a correspond- 
ing increase in the labor of this office in Real Estate alone. 

NOTE. A " sub " or subdivision is a lot or parcel of land owned by one 
or more parties, and calling for a separate entry upon the Assessment Roll. 

The 50-Vara Survey contains 324 Blocks of six 50-Vara lots, each 137 6-12

In this connection I desire to to call your attention to the Mortgages on 
realty held by the Trustees of such State Institutions as the University of 
California, and the Deaf and Dumb and Blind Asylum. The money of these 
institutions is loaned by the Trustees to private citizens. 

To secure the loan, a mortgage is taken upon the reality of the borrower. 

The Trustees obtain sanction for their action by virtue of An Act, passed 
by the State Legislature, about fifteen years ago. 



ASSESSOR'S KEPOKT. 73 

The sum of $514,755, representing the value of the above class of mort- 
gages for this year in this County, has been stricken from the Assessment 
Roll, as, under a late decision of our Supreme Court, these mortgages have 
been declared exempt from taxation. The letter of the law permits the 
Trustees of these institutions to loan the money of the State upon this class 
of security. It seems to me the Act is open to the gravest objections. 
The policy of such legislative enactments is exceedingly questionable. 
Your attention is here called to the subject, because of the hop 3 that you 
would thereby be induced to take such steps as might seem in your judg- 
ment proper to have the State Legislature at its next session memorialized 
regarding this evil with a view to its repeal. 

Every county in this State has a right to expect the property located 
within each and every other county will contribute its just and reasonable 
proportion of tax to the State Treasury. 

A law which tends to create a class exempted from the payment of taxes 
to either State or County, is wrong, and in its nature radically unjust ; such 
laws are un-American and un-democratic. 

The constitution contemplated that the burthens of the State should be 
equally borne by all citizens of the commonwealth. 

This system of cla^s exemption from taxation is subversive of good 
government. It is unconstitutional in its every part. No constitution of 
any form of government contemplates the conserving, by law, of a system 
that inherently provides for the destruction of the State or any of its integral 
parts. 

The revenue needed for the support of these institutions of the State, 
should be derived from either direct taxation or general public securities. 

The amount expended by this office during the year ending June 30, 1889, 
for salaries of extra deputies was $50,000 ; as allowed by your Honorable 
Board. 

For the amount of expenditures of this office for advertising, stationery, 
printing, etc., I beg to refer you to the report of the Auditor and Treasurer, 
as also for the amount of poll tax collected. 

I also herewith submit for your inspection, a copy of my annual report to 
the Surveyor General of the State with the statistics of the Mechan- 
ical and Manufacturing interests of the City and County. 

Very respectfully, 

J. C. NEALON, 

Assessor of the City and County of San Francisco.

REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER 



SAN FRANCISCO FIRE DEPARTMENT. 



HEADQUARTERS FIRE DEPARTMENT, 
OLD CITY HALL, 

SAN FRANCISCO, July 1, 1889. 

To the Honorable Board of Supervisors 

Of the City and County of San Francisco: 

GENTLEMEN ; According to the law governing the Department, the under, 
signed, Chief Engineer, has the honor of herewith submitting for your con- 
sideration the following report of the operations of the Department under 
his charge for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1889. 

Therein will be found a full list of the officers and members comprising 
the force, a record of the alarms responded to, and fires that have occurred 
during the year; the loss by fire and the amount of insurance on property 
affected; the aggregate of insurance paid; also such suggestions and recom- 
mendations that appear to me necessary to increase the efficiency of this branch 
of the municipal service. 

During the past year the Department responded to 296 first-bell alarms, 3 
second-bell alarms and 1 third-bell alarm, and 161 still or verbal alarms, 
making a total of 461 alarms of fire answered by the Department. 

The total loss by fire as determined by Captain White of the 

Underwriters Fire Patrol was $1,042,367.35 

Amount of Insurance Paid 593,557.27 



Actual Loss to Property- owners $448,810.08 



CHIEF ENGINEER'S REPORT. 161 

NOTABLE FIRES. 

July 25, 1888, 2:55 P. M., Box 219. This alarm was for a fire in the pack- 
ing house of Roth, Blum & Co., caused from a defective smoke house. In 
consequence of the inflammable nature of the contents of the premises, the 
fire spread with great rapidity. Owing to the inadequate supply of water in 
this neighborhood, there being but two hydrants in this vicinity, it required 
great effort on the part of the Department to stop the fire from spreading to 
the adjoining buildings. 

The loss at this fire is estimated to be $37,731.50. 

September 9, 1888, 1:U P. M., Box 265. This alarm was for a fire which 
started in the Main Street Planing Mill, caused from a spark from a furnace 
Owing to the inflammable nature of the building and the adjoining struct- 
ures and the high wind which at the time was prevailing, the fire spread with 
great rapidity, and proved to be the most disastrous conflagration of the year, 
consuming everything in its path, from Main street to the water front. 
The rapidity of this fire was so great that the hose of the Department was 
consumed in many instances as soon as it was laid, thereby causing consider- 
able loss to the Department. 

The loss at this fire is estimated to be $453,000. 

May 9, 1889, 2:52 A. M., Box 78. This alarm was for a flre in the Pacific 
Box Factory, on Ninth street, between Harrison and Bryant streets. Esti- 
mated loss, $20,000. 

CASUALTIES. 

In view of the daogerous.duties the members of the Department have to 
perform, and the great risks they take in the discharge of those duties, the 
casualties, I am pleased to say, have been few during the year. The follow- 
ing is the list of the most serious : 

February 18, 1839, Henry Ryder, Hoseman in Engine 9; crushed foot and injured ankle joint by 
being run over by the hose cart. 

April 18, 1833, James Riley, Foreman Hose Company Xo. 5; broke ankle joint. 

June 5, 1833, James Riley. Assistant Chief Engineer, in responding to an alarm of fire from Box 
36 was thrown from his buggy and had his wrist broken and leg injured. 

MORTUARY. 

During the year the following members and employees of the Department 
died : 

August 23, 1838, Thos. Creighton, Hoseman in Engine 17, died of consumption. 
September 2, 1833, N. H. Arnett, Driver of Hose 5, died of heart disease. 
September 23, 188S, David Donahue, Hoseman Engine 9, killed. 
Ootobsr 13, 18*83, Fred Rose, Engine 5, died of consumption. 
Novembar 28, 1833, C. Quigley, Hoseman Engine 10, died of consumption.

One-half of which has been turned over to the License Collector and the 
other half to the Treasurer of the Charitable Fund of the Fire Department, 
and receipts taken for the same by the Secretary of the Board of Fire 
Wardens. 

BECOMMENDA1IONS. 

I again renew my recommendation for a full paid Fire Department, at 
least in the business portion of the city. 

The experience of Seattle, W. T., Durango, Col., Hailey, I. T.. Ellens- 
burg, W. T.. Bakersfield, Cal., and Fresno, Cal., should be a sufficient warn- 
ing to this city of the necessity of increasing the Fire Department. 

The appropriation for the ensuing fiscal year is the same amount as in 
1878, and I can say, I think with safely, that the city has increased during 
the last eleven years at least one-third larger. 

The Western Addition and Commerfordville has lately been built up with 
fine residences, and are greatly in need of fire protection, but the appropria- 
tion of money for salaries of the Department is not sufficient to pay the 
present force of the Department for the year. 



CHIEF ENGINEER'S REPORT. 163 

It is also essentially necessary that more Hydrants be set in the Western 
Addition, Commerfordville and south of Market street. 

The fire of September 9th last proves conclusively that the appropriation 
for running expenses and material should be increased sufficiently to allow 
the purchase of at least 10,000 feet of Hose, to be stored in the Corporation 
Yard in case of a large conflagration. 

I also recommend that a suitable building to be used as a stable be erected 
on some lot belonging to the Department for the keeping of relief horses and 
forage. 

The stable now used is in a remote part of the city, a long distance from 
the center, and requires considerable time to send horses or forage therefrom 
when required by the different companies. 

I suggest that the stable be moved and the building be altered so as to in- 
crease the capacity of the Repair Shop, where all work necessary for the re- 
pair of the apparatus can be done with great facility. 

In closing this Report, I desire to tender my thanks to the Honorable 
Board of Fire Commissioners for the active interest you have manifested in 
all matters pertaining to the success of the Department, and I desire also to 
thank the officers and members of the force for the alacrity manifested on all 
occasions in complying with my orders. 

I also desire to express my thanks to his Honor Mayor Pond and the Board 
Supervisors for the interest they have manifested in all business pertaining 
to the Department. 

To the Chief of Police and members of his force, to Fire Marshal Charles 
Towe, to Captain White and Lieutenant O'Kell of the Fire Patrol, and to 
Superintendent Rankin, Fire Alaxm Telegraph, I am under many obligations 
for the manner in which they have assisted the Department in the discharge 
of their duties on all occasions. 

Respectfully submitted, 

DAVID SCANNELL, 

Chief of Fire Department.

BATTEBIE3. 

There are now in use 202 gravity cells, 150 electropoion, 13 Fuller and 
7 Leclanche. 

WIRES. 

The Department is now operating one hundred and fifty-five miles of 
wire, the number of circuits remaining the same as last year 13 signal, 7 
alarm and 2 Tapper circuits. 






EXTENSIONS. 



Both Tapper circuits have been extended and changed into metallic cir- 
cuits, thereby giving much better service. Other circuits have been rempved 
from housetops and placed on poles, a number of long loops have been 
straightened out, and the work of overhauling the system generally and 
placing it in first-class condition has been carried on as rapidly as possible. 

There is still much work to be done before winter. Nearly all the boxes 
and many poles should be painted; also quite a number of unsound poles 
replaced. This work necessitates the employment of several extra men. 

I would recommend that the repair force be permanently increased by 
the addition of one man, and also renew my recommendation that the oper- 
atiag force be increased to four men.

322 CITY AND COUNTY ATTORNEY'S REPORT. 



RECEIPTS AND EXPENDITURES. 

The amount received for salaries and the amount received on requisitions 
approved by the Board of Supervisors appear in the report of the Auditor, 
to which I respectfully refer. 

The amount received on demand for the necessary expenditure in the 
conduct of litigation was $36.60, all of which was disbursed and ia accounted 
for by receipts and on the books of this office. 



REVIEW. 

There was pending at the commencement of the fiscal year (exclusive of 
street assessment cases, of which there are now about 415 still pending), 313 
cases in which the City and County or its officers were parties. Since that 
time 94 new cases have been brought against the City and its officers. In 
. the same period 55 cases have been tried in the various Courts, four of which 
were tried by special counsel on behalf of the City and County, and 61 by 
myself. Thirty-nine of the cases so tried by me were decided in favor of the 
City and County, and 10 decided against it. Four cases were settled by 
order of Board of Supervisors, and two dismissed. 

There are now pending in the various Courts 352 cases (exclusive o 
street assessment casea), of which those involving claims againt the City are 
as follows: 

For grading streets, etc '. $351,105 94 

For damages for alleged nuisances, defective sewers, etc 259,639 44 

For various claims, rents, salaries, etc 195,020 48 

For the destruction of property' by the riot of 1877 2,000 00 

The remainder are principally suits to quiet title to lands, etc. 

These suits, in which the City and County are plaintiffs, are mostly for 
the recovery of lands of great value, held in adverse possession; also for the 
recovery of money, etc. 

Tery respectfully, 

GEORGE FLOURNOY, JB,, 

City and County Attorney.

The following items of interest, and transactions of importance by the 
Board of Health, have occurred since my last report of July 1, 1888: 



MEDICAL INSPECTOBAT HONGKONG. 



In the month of last July there were alarming reports of the prevalence 






HEALTH OFFICER'S REPORT. 325 

of cholera in Hongkong and other Chinese ports. Every precaution was 
taken here, and the city was fortunate in escaping a visitation of this disease. 
In view of the difficulty of obtaining trustworthy information from China, 
the Board of Health passed the following resolution : 

Resolved, That in view of the frequent epidemicsjof cholera and smallpox, and the proba- 
bility that cholera, smallpox and typhous fever are endemic at Hongkong and other Chinese 
ports, and the frequent contradictions and total unreliability of the reports received by us in 
relation to the existence of these diseases, that the Surgeon- General of the U. S. Marine Hos- 
pital Service be requested to appoint and maintain a Medical Inspector at Hongkong, whose 
sole business shall be to report on the existence of these diseases. 

A resolution was also passed ordering "that no person affected with any 
infectious disease shall be allowed to land in this city." 

Correspondence has passed between the Surgeon-General and this office, 
but so far nothing has been accomplished toward the appointment of an 
Inspector. 

WATEB AT NOBTH BEACH BATHS. 

In August there was much discussion in the press as to the reported un- 
healthy condition of the water in the bathing establishment at North Beach. 
The Board caused the water to be examined by exports, who reported " that 
there was nothing injurious in the water, and nothing indicative of contami- 
nation that would be in the least degree injurious td health for bathing 
purposes." 

DISEASED CATTLE. 

In October Mr. A. S. Mercer, an agent of the Bureau of Animal Industry, 
at Washington, reported that he had found a large number of cattle dying of 
Texas fever in the Salinas valley, and that anthrax was prevalent at Gonzales 
and in other parts of the State. The Board of Health at once appointed! a 
Veterinary Surgeon and two additional Market Inspectors "to prevent the 
importation into, and sale of, diseased meat in this city." Your Honorable 
Body kindly co-operated by allowing liberal salaries to these officials, and' the 
result has been the condemnation and exclusion of large numbers of diseased 
cattle and a vigorous application of sanitary measuresln the slaughter-houses 
atButchertown. I have found the butchers quite willing to assist in the 
-enforcement of the rules of the Board of Health, and consequently the 
slaughter-houses are in a much better sanitary condition than formerly, and 
few diseased cattle are now brought to the city. 

TANNERIES. 

There having been many complaints made at this office regarding the 
tanneries at the Mission, the Board passed a resolution " that the floors of 
these tanneries be made water-tight and be coated with asphaltum up to the 
edges of the vats, that they drain directly into the street sewer, and that the 
ground under the floors be covered with six inches of clean sand." This 
rule was carried out, and there have been no further complaints. 



326 HEALTH OFFICER'S REP OUT 1 .. 

AMBULANCE. 

In December, at the request of the Board of Health, an ambulance was- 
furnished by your Honorable Board for the purpose of transporting persons 
injured in the streets, or elsewhere, to their homes or to the Receiving Hos- 
pital for treatment. An ambulance service has long been a pressing need in 
this city, and I trust that means may be found to place it in full operation. 

BILL FOB ADDITIONAL INSPECTORS. 

In February of the present year, at the instance of the Board of Health, 
a bill was introduced into the Legislature providing for additional Health 
and Market Inspectors. City authorities were to be enabled to appoint two 
Health Inspectors for a population of 50,000, and one for each 35,000 in- 
habitants in excess of 50>000. Also one Market Inspector for 50,000 inhabi- 
tants, and one for each 40,000 in excess of that number. This bill, however, 
failed to become law. 

EISINFECTOB. 

The apparatus for the disinfection of clothing, bedding, etc., is now 
ready to be erected at the City and County Hospital, or in some other fitting 
locality. When it is completed articles maybe sent from houses where cases 
of smallpox, diphtheria or any other infectious disease may have occurred, 
and returned after thorough disinfection. This d.sinfector will fill a want 
long felt in this city, where the clothing and bedding of patients affected 
with smallpox have been frequently destroyed to prevent contagion, thorough , 
disinfection not being possible. 

G ABB AGE. 

In my last report I mentioned the dangers that might occur from the 
practice of dumping the city's garbage at the foot of Sixth street. I again 
strongly recommend that steps be taken toward building a crematory, or 
disposing of the garbage in some other manner than that now in use. 



The sewerage system of the [city is being vigorously extended by the 
Street Department. The Superintendent of Streets, Mr. Ashworth, has co- 
operated with me on all occasions by carrying out my recommendations for 
new sewers. A great improvement is visible south of the Mission, where 
the Boar 1 of Health has been particularly active in enforcing sanitary reg- 
ulations. 

CHINESE QUABTEB. 

Attention has also been paid to the condition of the Chinese quarter. 
When a house has been found in an offensive condition, it has been ordered 
vacated until thoroughly cleaned, whitened, and the plumbing and drainage 
made to agree with the regulations of the Board of Health. Twenty-three 
houses have been treated in this manner in Chinatown this year, and I 
believe that by a gradual enforcement of these rules this quarter may be 
placed in as good a sanitary condition as any other part of the city.

On July 1st a man from Bethany, in this State, came to the city with 
confluent smallpox and died. He does not appear to have infected any one, 
as the next case did not occur until August 22d, also a man from the country. 
Between that date and August 31st, thirteen cases occurred; in September 
twenty-four cases, and the disease was then more or less prevalent until 
February 1st, when it appeared to have entirely disappeared from the city. 
In March more cases began to come in from the country. On the 4th, one 
from Marin county; on the 16th, one from Portland; on the 24th, one from 
Sacramento. In April there was one case, direct from Colorado. In May 
three cases occurred on the 3d that of a man who had been handling sugar 
on a foreign vessel, and two cases from the country, one on the 4th and one 
on the 27th. Withregard to this last case, when the case was discovered 
the man was nearly well. He had been in the city a week, living in a crowded 
lodging-house, daily walking the streets and mingling with the people. No 
evil results seem to have occurred. There have been no new cases of small- 
pox, and it either shows that vaccination is very general or that climatic 
conditions are not at present favorable to the spread of the disease.

MARKET INSPECTOR'S fjEPOf}T. 



SAN FKANCISCO, July 1, 1889. 
To D. E. BARGEE, M. D., 

Health Officer City and County of San, Francisco: 

DEAK SIR: I have the honor to report that during my term of office, from 
July 1, 1888, to close with the fiscal year ending June 30, 1889, 1 respectfully 
present the following as the confiscations made, viz. : 



Twenty-eight thousand six hundred and fifty 

(28,650) pounds of beef. 

Twenty-six hundred (2600) pounds of mutton. 
Ten thousand eight hundred and fifty (10,850) 

pounds of pork. 

Thirty-five hundred (3500) pounds of fish. 
Eighteen hundred (1800) pounds of veal. 
Five hundred and nineteen (519) calves. 
One hundred and five (105) hogs. 



Ninety-five (95) sheep. 

Five hundred (500) pounds of ham. 

Three hundred (300) pounds of bacon.

Eleven hundred and twenty (1120) chickens.

HUGH CEUMMEY,

CITY PHYSICIAN'S REPORT. 



SAN FBANCISCO, July 15, 1889. 

To the Honorable the Board of Supervisors 

Of the City and County of San Francisco: 

GENTLEMEN: Under the provisions of the law (Resolution 2213, Third 
Series), it becomes my duty and pleasure to submit my repoit for the fiscal 
year ending June 30, 1889, which I herewith enclose. 

The County Jail is in a very good hygienic condition, considering its 
crowded state. The number of prisoners on June 30, 1889, was 193. There 
are very few patients in the jail at present, and all of them contracted their 
ailments prior to their imprisonment. The diseases are mostly venereal and 
local. 

The establishing of a Receiving Hospital last March, by your Honorable 
Body, filled a much needed want of the City. The fitting up of the second 
floor for female patients is a necessity, and I would respectfully request the 
Board to give this matter their consideration. I would also request the 
Board to furnish the necessary surgical instruments and appliances, as it is 
quite impossible to do the work properly without them. The small sum of 
$350 will, I think, purchase all that is absolutely needed. 

During the six months ending June 30, 1889, th?re were 1,026 cases at- 
tended at the County Jail, and 378 indigent poor prescribed for. 

It appears that from June 30, 1888, to December 31, 1888, no record was 
kept nor reports made of the cases attended at the County Jail and those of 
the indigent poor by Dr. Blach, who occupied the position of City Physician 
during that time. 

The number of cases treated at the Receiving Hospital and City Prison 
during the year ending June 30, 1889, was 4,394. 

I enclose the report of the Assistant City Physician. 
Respectfully, 

ROBERT E. WILLIAMS, 
City Physician and Police Surgeon.

SAN FBANCIECO, July 1, 1880. 
To the Honorable the Board of Supervisors 

Of the City and County of San Francisco: 

GENTLEMEN: I have the honor of presenting for your consideration my 
annual report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1889: 

Of the several societies having burial plots in the City Cemetery, there 
have be<n interr-d, as follows:

There has been expended for head-boards $231 63 

I would respectfully call the attention of your Honorable Body to the 
condition of the fences enclosing the cemetery. In places they are worn out 
and down so much that cattle have free access to the cemetery. I invite 
your particular attention to the Pioneer plot. The fences enclosing the 
groun Js are almost entirely gone, and the plot is in a most deplorable c(indi- 
tion. I would suggest that there be a good picket fence erected, and trees 
and hedges planted around the plot, and there be a general renovation of the 
premises. 

Several of the societies who have been granted burial plots by the city in 
the City Cemetery have neglected the same. I would suggest to your Hon- 
orable Body that in justice to those who do keep their grounds in order, that 
the others be required to do the same. 

The books containing the records of the interments and disintermenta 
should be kept in a safe that they may not be destroyed by fire. The cottage 
(in which is the office) and its surroundings, also the tank and pump, are very 
much in need of immediate repairs. 

Very respectfully, 

THOMAS E.\GAB, 
Superintendent of City and County Cemetery.

404 HOSPITAL REPORT. 



APOTHECARY'S REPORT. 



SAN FBANCISCO, July 26, 1889. 
DR. J. H. HBALT, Sup't Physician City and County Hospital : 

DEAD SIB: I herewith submit the report of the Drug Department for the 
fiscal year ending June 30th, 1889, together with an itemized account of all 
surgical instruments purchased during the year, with their prices. 

I also submit a few comments on the condition of this department at the 
time of assuming charge of it, July 1st inst. 

In handing in this, my first report of the Drug Department of the 
Hospital, I deem it proper to acquaint you with its condition at the time of 
assuming its management, and beg to say that the delay in placing the report 
in your hands is due to the incomplete condition in which I found the books 
and accounts. 

Total absence of any kind of system was conspicuously noticeable all 
over the department; all the rooms being in great disorder, and the floors, 
walls, counters, tables, shelves and cupboards covered with dirt and filth. 

Many drugs and chemicals were found in out-of-the-way places where 
their existence was plainly not suspected. 

In the cellar store-room, a place entirely unfitted for storage of perishable 
goods, was found a considerable quantity of stock more or less injured, a 
portion being entirely unfit for use; the room itself being unspeakably filthy. 
In all my experience I have never seen Drugstore or Dispensary in such a 
demoralized condition. 

The system of keeping the books and accounts seems to me to have been 
very imperfect the one in use not even being adhered to. 

I am glad to say that out of a state of utter chaos is coming some degree 
of order; the work being greatly retarded, however, by a lack of help, my 
assistant, Mr. Day, and myself doing most of the rough work, as well as the 
manufacturing at intervals when not not pressed with regular daily work. 

Respectfully yours, 

L. C. WAGNER, 

Apothecary.

The appropriation for Almshouse expenses for 1888-89 was $80,000. 
The amount paid out from the City and County Treasury was $77,302.88; 
consequently there was a surplus of $2,697.12 remaining at the close of the 
fiscal year. 

The past year has served to confirm the impression I have previously 



440 ALMSHOUSE REPORT. 

expressed, that the number of inmates drifting to the Almshouse will steadily 
increase from year to year, owing principally to the fact that -the City and 
County Hospital transfers all its incurable convalescents to the Institution . 
Most of these people are paralytics, cripples or consumptives, who come to 
remain. They are unable to do any kind of work, many of them being 
perfectly helpless. 

All the inmates, both male and female, who were capable of work, have 
been employed, their labor being utilized wherever it would be most useful; 
mechanics at their trades, and others on the farm, in the gardens, bakery, 
laundry, stables, dining-rooms, etc,, etc. The female inmates have as usual 
been employed in the sewing-room, or scrubbing floors, washing, house- 
cleaning, etc., all able to work doing something. 

The roads in the neighborhood have been kept in good condition, and the 
buildings, inside and out, have had men constantly at work on them, paint- 
ing, whitening and repairing, so that they have at all times presented a neat 
and attractive appearance. 

The sanitary condition of the buildings has been a subject of constant 
care and attention. The sewers have been flushed weekly and disinfectants 
used at all times, so that while each building has its share of bad cases, 
nothing of an offensive nature has been experienced. 

The crops on the farm this season have not been a success, owing to the 
blight which periodically visits this locality having attacked the potatoes 
when half -grown, and the prolonged foggy weather preventing the oats for 
hay from properly heading out and ripening. Our supply of milk has been 
up to the requirements of the Institution, from which a large portion of the 
butter used has been made. 

Religious services have continued as formerly, nearly every denomination 
being represented, and my thanks are hereby tendered to the priesthood of 
the Mission Dolores Church for their prompt attention to the spiritual wel- 
fare of the Catholic portion of the inmates. 

My thanks are also due to Rev. Mr. Drummond and Rev. W. J. O'Brien, 
of the Episcopal Church, also to Rev. James Campbell, for their faithful and 
unwearying devotion to those of the Protestant faith.. 

My grateful acknowledgments are also tendered to those kind-hearted, 
thoughtful citizens who have from time to time furnished reading matter for 
use of the inmates. They are too numerous to name, and many of them 
unknown. 

My thanks are also due to all who helped contribute so bountiful a sup- 
ply of toys and candy for the Almshou.se children at Christmas. In this 
connection I wish to return thanks to the late City and County Grand Jury, 
of which F. S. Chadbourne, Esq., was Chairman, for the generous donation 
of $67 to be used for the benefit of the Almshouse children . 

During the year 1888-89 I have received from the State under the "Act 
to appropriate money for support of aged persons in indigent circumstances, "" 



ALMSHOUSE REPORT. 441 

the sum of $31,699.68. I have also received from the same source, under 
the "Act to appropriate money for support of orphan, half-orphan and 
abandoned children," $1,546.05, or a total of $33,245.73. This amount has 
been duly^paid into the City and County Treasury. 

The total amount received from the State of California under these two 
acts to this date is $170,138 63; thus relieving the tax-payers of the City and 
County to that amount on account of Alnishouse expenses. 

The Auditor's figures give the amount paid out of the City and County 
Treasury for the year ending June 30, 1889, on account of the Almshouse, as 
$77,302.88; deducting therefrom the amount I have returned to said Treasury, 
received from sales of Almshouse property, viz: $1,440.47, and $33,245.73 
received from the State, the actual depletion of the City and County Treas- 
ury on account of Almshouse expenses has been $42,616.68. 

From the opening of the Almshouse to the present time 11,231 inmates 
have been admitted and provided with a comfortable home through the gen- 
erous charity of the people of the City and County of San Francisco. 

Sincerely thanking your Honorable Body and the Hospital Committee of 
the Honorable Board of Supervisors for your and their kind co-operation 
and support, this report is most respectfully submitted. 

M. J. KEATING, 

Superintendent City and County Almshouse. 
San Francisco, July 1, 1889. 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 



San Francisco Free Public Library. 



To the Honorable the Board of Supervisors 

Of the City and County of San Francisco ; 

GENTLEMEN: The Board of Trustees of the San Francisco Free Public 
Library respectfully submit to your honorable body, as required by law, 
their annual report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1889. 

It is very gratifying to the Trustees to be able to say that the Library 
committed to their charge has made during the past year very marked prog- 
ress, and that its general condition is now much better than at any previous 
period of its history. Its utility and efficiency as a factor in the education 
and enlightenment of the people are constantly increasing and becoming 
more and more generally recognized and appreciated. 

The removal of the Library to its present location in the New City Hall 
was a most wise and beneficial step, and the results of it have more than 
justified and compensated the expenditure of money, time and trouble neces- 
sary to bring it about. It has put the books in a place of almost perfect 
security. It has supplied the patrons of the Library with better 
lighted and more comfortable reading-rooms; and it has made the 
Library more accessible to those for whose benefit it was established. The 
Librarian reports that in the new reading-rooms there are fewer idlers than 
there were in the old, and a larger number of mechanics and students of the 
useful arts and trades. 

There is, however, one very serious deficiency connected with the present 
location of the Library a deficiency of room. There is not room enough to 
place all the books at a convenient elevation so as to be readily accessible. 
As a necessary consequence of this, many valuable works, which are in great 
demand, are on shelves so high above the main floor of the Library as to im- 
pose severe labor upon those whose duty it is to deliver books to the patrons, 
^ind to entail vexatious but unavoidable delay in the service. This, it will 
be readily perceived, is no slight impediment to the efficiency of the Library. 

As has been shown in previous reports of the Board of Trustees to your 
predecessors in office, San Francisco has always lagged behind other cities in 
the United States in the financial support given to her Free Public Library. 
Many far smaller cities have regularly made annual appropriations twice as 
large as those of San Francisco for the support of their free libraries. And 



BEPOET OF FEEE PUBLIC LIBRARY. 443 

yet there is perhaps no city in the Union in which the advantages of such an 
institution are more keenly appreciated or more eagerly sought by the people 
than in this, all things considered. It is difficult to account for or excuse 
this unwise parsimony. The public press of the city has uniformly favored 
liberal appropriations for this library. The people demand them. The city 
is abundantly able to afford them. The Library needs them, needs them 
sorely. And yet, to our shame be it said, they have not been forthcoming. 

The present Board of Supervisors, however, has this year shown a mani- 
fest and very commendable disposition to pursue a more liberal policy toward 
this most important and most deserving institution, and this policy has been 
very efficiently and warmly supported by Mr. Auditor Strother, whose ap- 
preciation of the Library and of its value to all classes of our people has been 
constant and practical. 

,For several years the appropriation for the Library has been so small that 
barely enough was given for the necessary and ordinary expenses. The 
Trustees have not been able to purchase books to any extent, and have not 
been able to keep up with the important publications of the day even in the 
mechanical arts, to say nothing of those in literature and the other arts and 
sciences although perhaps in no other period of the world's history have 
there been such important investigations, developments and discoveries in 
the arts and sciences. It is of the greatest importance that the student, the 
mechanic and the artisan of to-day should have in our Library, ready to his 
hand and available to his use, the latest publications upon the subject which 
is connected with his own individual success in life. If this is to be accom- 
plished and our Library is to have the same efficiency as other public libraries 
in other cities of the country, the appropriations must still be considerably 
increased to correspond with what other cities are doing. This, we feel 
assured, will ultimately be done. It will be but bare justice to the toiling 
but bookless thousands whose labor has been and ever will be the potent 
force in creating the wealth of this great city. 

That the Library has urgent needs ought not to be misunderstood. There 
are many broken sets of valuable works and many sets entirely wanting. 
Some important branches of literature are meagerly represented, and there 
are serious deficiencies in all branches. These we we will, at the proper 
time, ask your honorable body to supply so far as you are able to appro- 
priate the necessary funds. 

It gives us pleasure to praise the ability, great industry, and uniform 
courtesy and good nature in dealing with the public of our Librarian, and 
the general efficiency, good conduct and fidelity of all pur assistants and 
employes. 

The verified financial exhibit of the Secretary, the list of gifts to the 
Library for the year, and the Librarian's report, with its various appendixes, 
are herewith submitted and respectfully commended to the attention of your 
honorable body. 

THOS. B. BISHOP, 

By order of the Board. President .

THE FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY, 449 

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN. 

To the Trustees of the Free Public Library.- 

'. GENTLEMEN: I have the honor to submit my report for the year ending June 30, 1889, with 
appendixes of statistics. Our rooms in the New City Hall have proved attractive to a very 
desirable class of readers ; there being few idlers among them, and an increased number of 
mechanics and students of the useful arts and trades. 

The Supplementary Catalogue (No. 5), the manuscript of which was reported to you, a year 
ago, as ready for the printer, has been published, and the general commendation accorded it 
not only justifies the departure, but incites to further effort on like lines of improvement. The 
encouragement comes timely, for we have now before us the task of re-cataloguing the volumes 
in the Library not entered in the supplementary work, together with such volumes as shall be 
purchased before Catalogue No. 6 goes to press. This purchase should be liberal and made im- 
mediately, for without an early expenditure that shall complete our many broken sets and 
supply the serious deficencies of our various departments, the publication of so tedious and 
costly a work will be a waste of time and money. For several years past the additions to the 
Library, as you are well aware, have been very few. In plain truth, we have not books enough 
to justify the preparation of a first-class catalogue, and a second-class catalogue is rarely, if ever, 
justifiable. As shown in the figures of my report last year, the number of volumes in the 
Library was much less than previous figures indicated. The number by count last year, ex- 
elusive of pamphlets, was 49,475. But of these 12,052 were duplicates; so that the number of 
volumes, exclusive of both pamphlets and duplicates, was only 37,423. To this small number 
we have added during the year 3,364 volnmes and 1,832 pamphlets (1,417 volumes and 1,741 
pamphlets being gifts), so that the present showing in bound volumes is 40,787. These figures, 
for the Public Library of a rich city of at least 300,000 inhabitants, are, perhaps, argument 
enough in themselves for an immediate and liberal purchase of books. Were it not that the 
old catalogues will be worn out by the time a new one can be issued, imperfect as the old 
catalogues are, it would be better to hold to them for several years yet. However, the old 
catalogues will soon be gone, and a new catalogue must be made ; a new one, certainly not 
inferior in workmanship to the supplementary work just published. This means a large outlay, 
which, as the vigilant President of the Book Committee has so often stated, can be made 
economical only by a large purchase of books before the catalogue copy is begun. At an early 
date I shall have the honor to lay before you details concerning the new catalogue which I 
deem of first importance in the work of the coming year, and for which there is not space in 
this report. 

Our appropriation thanks to an auspicious awakening of interest in the Library has been 
again increased; incidental expenses will be less this year than heretofore; the purchase recom- 
mended is, therefore, possible, needing only your approval. 

One hundred dollars per month, and that format six months, was all at your disposal at 
any time during the past year for the purchase of current publications, and for such purchases 
as must be made without delay if the Library would take advantage of special offers of books 
at low prices. I would suggest an increase of the monthly allowance for this purpose. 

But the purchase of books is not all; room must be made for them, as well as for our 
readers. The internal working of the Library is, perhaps, as satisfactory as it can be in our 
present rooms, which necessitate the placing of the books so high, up so many stairs, and so 
far away from the delivery desk, that the physical labor of bringing them down is altogether 
too great. It causes delay in delivery, and is a hardship for the strongest boys in the messen- 
ger service. 

Provision being made for room and books, sufficient skilled labor must be employed to 
make a full and ready exhibit of the contents of the books. Whatever expenditure be made 
for books and room, it will avail little if there be lacking a sufficient and permanent cataloguing 
force. 

The quiet behavior and the studious habits 'of the public that visit our rooms froni day to 
day not to speak of the work of the three branches point to the splendid possibilities before 
the Library as a factor of culture; and I must not omit to express full confidence that the 
earnest and well directed efforts of your honorable body are destined to achieve their merited 
success Respectfully, J. V. CHENEY, Librarian.

Industrial School Report. 



To the Honorable the Board of Supervisors 

Of the City and County of San Francisco : 

GENTLEMEN. In compliance with Resolution No. 2213 (Third Series) of 
your Honorable Board, I hereby submit my annual report of the City and 
County Industrial School for the year ending June 30, 1889. 

Having but recently assumed charge of this institution, I cannot speak 
with particular exactness of 'the -work done by my predecessor during the 
fiscal year just ended. For information relating thereto I am compelled to 
rely almost entirely upon the statements of the officers and the books of the 
institution. 

I found, when entering upon the discharge of the duties of Superintend- 
ent on June 15, 1889, that the buildings were in a sad state of decay, and as 
far as I could judge no effort had been made to place the same in a proper 
state of repair, the plumbing being very defective, the floors of many of the 
work-houses in a deplorable condition, the kitchen and dining-rooms de- 
pleted of many indispensable utensils, the kitchen range and baker's oven 
so badly used up that it is absolutely necessary that they be put into imme- 
diate repair or entirely replaced the latter I would recommend as being the 
better and in the end the cheaper course to pursue . 

The vegetable garden I found to be wanting in many necessary products 
of daily use. This we have taken immediate steps to rectify. 

The farm has yielded a fair crop of hay, a fraction over forty-five ^45) 
tons. As for the potato crop, if that portion remaining ungathered is to be 
judged by that already taken from the ground, the yield will fall far short 
of what will oe necessary for the next year's supply. 

The horses belonging to the School are horses which formerly belonged to 
the Fire Department, and were condemned as unfit for that use. They are 
nearly worthless for continuous labor around the School. We are entirely 
without a horse fit for buggy use. 

The buildings and surrounding fence are so old and have evidently been 
allowed to go to decay, that it would require a great expenditure of money 
to put them in anything like proper repair; so much, in fact, that I would 
not dare make an estimate thereon. So far as the appropriation will allow I 
shall endeavor to repair the most needed portions . 



458 INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL EEPOET. 

The boys attending school I find to bo as far advanced in their studies as 
<jould be expected from boys placed in a similar position. 

The defects and dilapidated condition of the buildings had received the 
serious consideration of Mr. W. H. Harrison during his short term as acting 
Superintendent. He had planned numerous repairs and improvements, and 
had actually entered upon the work with a zeal and spirit that, if carried to 
xi successful issue, will result in great benefit to the inmates and property. 
All of which I most heartily approve. This work" will not only be of direct 
benefit to the institution, but during its prosecution it furnishes the boys 
with constant occupation, thereby engaging their minds and imparting to 
them a mechanical knowledge which may, if they elect to lead honest lives 
on their release, be of inestimable value to them. 

The unsightly mound of earth in the rear of the building is being re- 
moved, and in its stead we contemplate having the recreation grounds of the 
school. 

The front yards are being terraced, and it is pioposed to lay the same out 
in grass plots and flower beds. 

A front entrance will be made immediately opposite the front door of the 
building. 

The inmates have enjoyed the best of health, and save the ordinary indis- 
positions of boyhood no complaints have been made. 

The boys employed in the shoe and tailor shops and in the sewing-room 
have taken great interest in their work, and acquired a knowledge in their 
respective branches which will enable them if they choose to profit by it to 
earn an honest livelihood in the world. 

Mr. Oratizio Papallardo, instructor of music, has brought the boys in his 
department to a wonderful degree of proficiency, beginning at the rudiments 
of music, and thereby planting in their minds such a knowledge of the di- 
vine art that in the future they will always have something to fall back upon 
when all else fails. The Professor, however, labors under the great disad- 
vantage of not having proper instruments, those used by him having been in 
constant use for years and are in a sad condition. 

In my weekly visits to the Magdalen Asylum I have found that which has 
ever been found in that institution, that the care of and interest taken in the 
girls confided to the Sisters of Mercy has won for those most excellent ladies 
the esteem of the girls. That the Sisters have and are doing all that the 
most exacting could wish to lead those under their charge to a complete 
reformation of their lives. 

I seize this opportunity of expressing to Hon. John Foley, Superintend- 
ent of the House of Correction, my appreciation of his many courtesies ex- 
tended to this institution, he having tendered to us the service of skilled 
mechanics confined in that institution, thereby enabling us at a small ex- 
pense to effect many repairs in the School. 

To the interest taken by Dr. S. S. Kahn, the Visiting Physician, in the 
welfare of the inmates, it gives me great pleasure to give my testimony and 
express my gratitude. 



INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL REPORT. 4&9 

The inter* st taken by Supervisor H. C. Bingham, Chairman of the Indus- 
trial School Committee, and Supervisor Pilster, of that committee, has done 
much to advance the usefulness of the school, and to them I am indebted 
for much valuable counsel. 

To Mr. W. H. Harrison, Assistant Superintendent, and prior to my as- 
suming charge of the School, Acting Superintendent, I cannot sufficiently 
express my gratitude for the promptitude with which ho placed his thorough 
knowledge of the institution, its details and all relating thereto, at my dis- 
posal. I am greatly indebted to him for much valuable advice. 

To the officers and employees I am indebted, their labors being arduous 
and at times showing no satisfactory results. I tender them my sincere 
thanks, hoping to receive their earnest co-operation in the future as in the 
past. 

Trusting that our labors will receive the approbation of your Honorable 
Board, this report is respectfully submitted. 

JOHN E. HAMILL, 

Superintendent.

No session of school is held on Saturday, on account of the boys being 
employed bathing and cleaning school building. Their clothing and shoes 
are inspected Saturday afternoon, and the necessary repairs made. The 
boys are occupied reading miscellaneous works from the library on Saturday 
and Sunday evenings. 



MUSIC. 

The number of boys in the band ranges from ten to fourteen. Mr. 
Oratizio Papallardo, the leader of the band, has been employed during the 
past year instructing boys in this peculiar study. It requires a great deal of 
patience and perseverance on the part of the teacher to qualify boys for 
playing their respective instruments. His pupils have manifested a lively 
interest in the study of music. Man is a social creature, and to fit him for 
mingling with his fellows it is necessary to educate his affections; for all 
whether old or young the practice of vocal or instrumental music will be 
found the most influential agent for exerting a restraining and elevating 
influence over their lives. 



474 INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



GENERAL REMARKS. 

We find the great mass of prisoners in our penal institutions are illiterate. 
This being true, we should try and educate the juvenile delinquents and 
prevent them from becoming full-fledged criminals. It is necessary to try 
and develop the physical, moral and intellectual natures if we are to prevent 
them from leading criminal lives. The object of this institution should be 
to teach that which is useful and practical; something that will benefit them 
when they leave here and again mingle with the world. A large percentage 
of the boys committed to this institution do not attend school when at home. 
If they are to acquire the rudiments of an education they must obtain it 
when they are here. Too much praise cannot be accorded the boys for their 
good deportment during the past year. They have manifested much interest 
in their studies. Many of them will doubtless become useful members of 
society if they receive proper encouragement from their parents or guardians 
when they return home. It is next to impossible to reform a boy when ne 
is permitted to return to his evil companions. Whenever the boys have an 
opportunity they have manifested a desire to read miscellaneous books from 
the library. When they once acquire a taste for reading good books, they 
will not desire to read trashy novels. The reading habit once formed will 
never be abandoned. If a boy will spend his leisure moments in the Free 
Library when he returns to the city, there is little danger that he will return 
to his former mode of life. The assistant teachers in the employ of the 
School have labored faithfully in the performance of their respective duties. 
The boys receive religious and moral instruction Sundays from priests, 
^sisters of charity and Protestant ministers. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN A. WRIGHT, 

Principal Teacher. 
June 30, 1889.

GENERAL REMARKS. 

The foregoing detailed tabulated statements present transactions of the 
House of Correction for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1889, and I trust 
that the conclusions arrived, at will meet with your approval. 

During the year ending June 30, 1889, 1,145 prisoners were committed; 
there were discharged 1,059, leaving on hand 298 as against 206 on June.30, 
1888, making an increase of 92 for the year. This gain is to some extent 
caused by the increase of population; also to the rapid growth of the opium 
and morphine evil among a large number of our boys and young men. 

As shown by Exhibit F, out of 1,145 prisoners received over two-thirds of 
the number were for vagrancy, drunk and misdemeanor, their ages running 
from 15 to 89, there being over fifty between 60 and 89 years. 

I again respectfully call to your attention that many of these old people 
are not fit subjects for this institution. A large number of them are feeble- 
minded, on the verge of imbecility, and others are proper subjects for the 
Insane Asylums, Almshouse and Hospitals. Many of them are serving from 



HOUSE OF CORKECTION. 505 

their twentieth to sixty-third term, in fact making this place their regular 
home, while their only crime is that of being poor and homeless. 

In Exhibit O will be found a full and comprehensive statement of expen- 
ditures for the fiscal year as follows: Expenditures, $42,033.88; appropri- 
ation, $38,000; leaving a deficiency of $4,033.88, from which will be deducted 
$541.35, being cash received for sale of pigs, junk and maintenance of U. S. 
prisoners and paid into the City and County Treasury at various times, 
leaving a net deficiency of $3,492.53. 

It will be seen that the ration account for the month of July only 
amounts to $282.85; this is somewhat misleading until explained; the actual 
ration account for the above month amounted to $1,487.92. At the first of 
July, 1888, we had on hand contract supplies valued at $1,205.15, which 
were sold to contractor and amount deducted from his July demand. I will 
also state that at the yearly settlement with the contractor for supplies due, 
overdrawn, and for extras furnished during the year, there was a credit 
balance due us of $642.92, which amount was deducted from his June de- 
mand. There was remaining on hand at the close of the fiscal year unused 
contract supplies valued at $721.45, which will be sold to the succeeding 
contractor, making a saving in this account of $1,365. 

By careful examination of Exhibit O, you will see that there has been a 
large reduction in the various expense .accounts, such as hardware, black- 
smithing, lumber, paints, etc., etc. This Exhibit itself speaks for the 
judicious and economical management. I would also call your attention to 
Exhibit K, which shows for the pbst year a daily average of 261 prisoners, 
the highest for the past nine years. The cost per prisoner a day for actual 
maintenance Was 44 29-100c., the lowest ever attained. 



IMPROVEMENTS. 

During the past year many permanent improvements have been made 
throughout the building and grounds. The remaining waste space .in the 
rotunda has been divided into several rooms, with wood and glass parti- 
tions, which makes ample room for the various shops, with the prisoners 
constantly under the eyes of the guards. The entire sewerage and drainage 
has been thoroughly overhauled and repaired. 

The building, bath-house, outside shops, fence and guard-house have all 
been repainted* and present a very neat appearance. 

The gardens are in a very fine condition; several new and elegant de- 
signs have been added, making a very beautiful appearance. These im- 
provements have been made at no expense to the city except for material, 
the labor being performed entirely by the inmates. * 

While on this subject I would once more refer to the necessity of re- 
placing the present rotten and dilapidated wooden fence with a substantial 
brick or concrete wall. This fence, as it now is, requires renewal in sections 
every few months, and will in a few years prove fully as costly as a good 



506 REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF 

wall. At present this fence is not in any way ornamental or useful, it 
being in no way a safeguard against escape. 

OPIUM, COCAINE AND MORPHINE. 

Under the head of Health and Sanitary Condition in my report of last 
year, I particularly called the attention of your Honorable Body to the 
continued increase of the habit of using opium among our boys arid young 
men. 

It is with much pain that I now report the continued increase of this 
evil in the past year, added with another even more deadly and horrible 
in its effects, that is the use of morphine and cocaine hypodermically. 

A large percentage of the prisoners received the past year have been 
addicted to one or the other or both of these vices mostly all young men 
or boys. They arrive the most dilapidated physical wrecks, hardly able 
to drag one foot after the other, their bodies covered with injection scars and 
abscesses, merely skin and bones, pallid faces, dull and heavy eyes, seeming 
with only one object in life and that to procure the drug. The importance 
of this subject cannot be too strongly dealt with; it is by far the greatest 
evil of the age; every citizen of the State should feel it their duty to do all 
in their power to suppress it. There comes a cry from heaven for the sup- 
pression of this terrible vice which foreshadows a future too horrible to be 
imagined. It should strike the heart of every mother and father and become 
so impressed upon the minds of the people in general that perfect warfare 
should be declared against it. The habit when once acquired seems impos- 
sible to be broken off, uncomparable with any known disease. 

It has been a continual problem with Dr. Kahn and myself as to the 
most effectual and best method of curing these poor creatures which are 
under my charge. Thus far in our experience we have found that confine- 
ment with a small allowance of the prepared drug, decreasing each day until 
finally none at all, will render the patient almost free from the terrible appe- 
tite. We have some very striking examples here at present; some when 
received weighing less than 100 pounds and after a confinement of ninety 
days are strong, robust and healthy, weighing as much as 160 pounds, 
with nearly all desire for this terrible drug gone. 

I find this class of prisoners the most refractory. They are physically 
unfit for any manual labor, are a constant cause of annoyance, requiring the 
utmost vigilance on the part of the officers and guards, also an extra source 
of expense by use of the most expensive drugs and extra nourishing food. 

EMPLOYMENT OF PRISONERS. 

It is my utmost desire that all who are committed to this institution 
should be provided with some kind of labor. Employment is the foundation. 



HOUSE OF CORRECTION. 507 

in the refoim of criminals. By such methods the principles of industry are 
taught to the vagrant. The proper employment of the hands have equal 
influence on the mind. The busy prisoner has less inclination to brood over 
his imprisonment or to scheme for the continuance of crime upon society 
when released. 

No greater problem has ever been presented to the'people of our Union 
than that of prison labor. It is unquestionably conceded that inmates of 
our prisons must work. Idleness would be a crime in itself. The problem 
is, how shall they bo employed so as not to conflict with free labor? The 
object of imprisonment is, first, to protect society from the immoral and 
illegal acts of the disorderly, vicious and criminal classes by their confine- 
ment where they riiay be guarded and cared for at a minimum expense. 
Second, to reform them while prisoners, that they maybe worthy of freedom 
and not a constant menace to the peace of the public. The first protection 
to society may be easily secured. Men may be herded in prisons, their 
physical necessities cared for, and be controlled by a few guards with 
muskets alone for aid. But reform is quite another thing; the process to 
be followed is not imprisonment alone, but manual labor, such as will show 
an actual benefit. A term of imprisonment should bring to the prisoner a 
knowledge that crime has its penalty and that freedom can only be main- 
tained by living honestly and obeying the laws. 

During the past year the inmates have performed 11,005 days' labor on 
the County roads as by the Labor Exhibit. In this time with the force at 
my command have built and graded over seven miles of County road. This 
work has been of the greatest value to the County, and has been accom- 
plished at a nominal expense, such extra expense as tools, powder and fuse 
and the employment of one extra guard was furnished by the Superintendent 
of Streets, who in this manner gave hearty co-operation for which I feel 
greatly indebted. 

The work that has been accomplished in this way would not otherwise 
have been done, as the expense would have been too great and the Treasury 
too small. 

I feel justified in taking pride in what has been accomplished in this 
section of the County, and feel that the property-owners on these roads are 
much indebted to this mode of labor. 

The work of the present year, together with that of the previous years, 
has made a large section of these roads macadamized and perfect specially 
adapted for pleasure driving. It is my most earnest desire to continue this 
work until all of the outlying roads in this section of the County have been 
brought up to the standard. 

A large percentage of the misdemeanants, drunks and vagrants sent here 
from the Police Courts furnish the very best material for this kind of work, 
being men of middle age, used to hard work, and who for the small extra 
benefits to be derived from diligent labor, perform nearly as much work, 



508 REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF 

hour for hour, as could be obtained. With more of this kind of material, 
work on hand and contemplated could be pushed with greater vigor. 

A large number of the unemployed prisoners could be used to a good 
advantage in building a much needed brick or concrete wall around the 
grounds. We have the proper help, with the best soil within our reach for 
the manufacture of bricks, so at less than one-half of the ordinary expense 
we could have a brick wall that could not be surpassed in the country. 
There are many other indus'ries that could be carried on in outside shops 
without conflicting with free labor, and thereby be a ben< fit to both the 
institution and the inmates. I trust that your Honorable Body will give 
particular attention to this part of my recommendations. 

REFORMATION OF YOUNG CRIMINALS. 

This institution was intended for the reform of the erring youth, but 
under the present system it fails to reach the proper standard, it being diffi- 
cult to maintain many of the reformatory necessities, owing to the limited 
means. One of the greatest drawbacks being the association of the first 
offender with that of the older and hardened criminal who has spent many 
terms in prison. 

Out of the number committed last year, over sixty were serving as high 
as their fifth and sixth term for petit larceny. This class of criminals belong 
in the Penitentiary. They are incorrigible, have led a continuous life of 
crime and are beyond redemption, demoralizing other inmates, and it is only 
a waste of time and money to attempt their reform. Fortunately our Code 
makes a second crime of petit larceny a felony, and I would call particular 
attention of your Honorable Board to the fact of such confirmed criminals 
being sent here. Where the fault lies is uncertain, but I would suggest that 
some action be taken so the Judges and officers will not be imposed upon by 
this class, who are being sent out here as first offenders while they are in 
reality "old-timers." I appreciate the fact that this is no easy matter, as 
they are continually changing their names, but I believe the present system 
can be improved upon. 

The class of first offenders who are guilty of felony, and are consequently 
subject to the Penitentiary but sent to this institution for the object of 
reform, are becoming largely increased. During the past year fifty of such 
prisoners were committed here, which together with the number of petit 
larceny "repeaters" discharged and committed during the year would 
amount to, 165 whose expense should be borne by the State. These, at the 
rate of 25 cents a day each, would amount to about $20,000 a year, which 
amount should be derived by this institution for their care. With such 
additional means many equipments necessary in the process of reform could 
be purchased and this institution brought much nearer what its designers 
originally intended a House of Reform. 

Notwithstanding the many drawbacks, and in the face of opposition, we 
have accomplished much good, fully ten per cent, of the young inmates have 



HOUSE OF CORRECTION. 50 

left thoroughly reformed, and if such a rate can be kept up it will be- a great 
benefit. 

HEALTH AND SANITARY CONDITION. 

It is with much pleasure that I report the health of the inmates ex- 
ceptionally good. 

Only one death during the year, and that from old age. 

The sanitary condition is perfect. " Cleanliness " is the motto through- 
out the various departments of the institution. 

As illustrated by the " Diet Table," the food is ample in quantity, good 
in quality, and is specially adapted to the requirements of the prisoners. 
The ventilation of the cells conform to the most approved priuciples. As 
a result there has not originated in the institution during the past year a 
single case of the so-called preventable diseases. 

When it is taken into consideration that the average daily number of 
prisoners has been 261, and the depraved physical condition of the average 
inmate is considered, this showing is certainly most gratifying. 

I can bestow all praise on the Visiting Physician, Dr. S. S. Kahn, for 
his faithful and untiring efforts, always ready to answer to our call at any 
time, day or night. By his careful diagnosis of all the cases brought to 
his attention, and a judicious dispensing of necessary medicines, a high 
standard of health has been maintained. 

I also feel grateful to both the retiring and the present Boards of 
Health for their kindness and courtesy. 



LIBRARY AND MORAL INSTRUCTION. 

During the past year the library has received several donations of some of 
the most interesting and beneficial works, the good result of which can be 
seen by the active interest taken by many of the inmates in intellectual 
subjects. The library now has over 500 volumes, and is well supplied with 
pamphlets and Sunday school papers. 

My most sincere thanks are due to the late Grand Jury for their kind 
donation of books, particularly Messrs. F. S. Chadbourne, Levi Strauss and 
Henerie; also Father Kenna, of Jesuit College, and The Bancroft Company, 

The most active and untiring interest has been taken in the spiritual 
welfare of the inmates, regardless of creed, by Father Kenna, of Jesuit Col- 
lege, who deserves much praise for his noble work, much good having been 
accomplished by him, for which I feel greatly indebted. 

The Sisters, Rev. Mr. Drummond and Mr. O'Brien, of the Episcopal 
Church, have also worked earnestly for the benefit of the inmates, for which 
they have my most heartfelt thanks. Church service and Sunday school 
had heen held regularly. 



510 KEPOBT OF SUPERINTENDENT. 



DISCIPLINE. 

The order and discipline has been exceptionally good, better than any 
previous year. Very little punishment inflicted. When inmates obey the 
orders and rules they are treated with direful consideration, but when they 
show no regard for the discipline of the institution they are treated accord- 
ingly severely but humanely. 

My assistant, Mr. Geo. Webb, has conducted the duties of his office in 
the most able and energetic manner, never tiring of seconding my efforts ^n 
interest of the welfare of the institution. It gives me great pleasure tc also 
report the efficiency of all of the officers and guards of the institution. They 
have always been prompt in the discharge of their duties, and by their energy 
in carrying out orders have materially aided me in bringing this institution 
up to its present excellent condition. My work has also been greatly facili- 
tated by your Honorable Board, who have individually and as a body given 
me your confidence, advice and most hearty support; and the honorable 
Committee on Health, Police and House of Correction, under whose super- 
vision this institution is conducted, can but join with me in feeling proud of 
the success of this institution during the past year. 

My most sincere and heartfelt thanks are due to his honor, the Mayor, 
for his kindness and courtesy. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN FOLEY, 
Superintendent of House of Correction.

REPORT 

OF THE 

SUPERINTENDENT OF COMMON SCHOOLS. 



To the Honorable the Board of Supervisors 

Of the City and County of San Francisco: 

GENTLEMEN: In accordance with law, I have the honor to submit here- 
with the Thirty-sixth Annual Eeport of the Superintendent of Common 
Schools in the City and County of San Francisco, for the fiscal year ending 
June 30, 1889. 

Were it of any avail we would make an extended report, setting out the 
virtues and the defects that are noticeable in our Public Schools. Our ob- 
servation, however, both as a teacher in our schools and in the Superintend- 
ency thereof, has led us to the inference that it is almost, if not altogether, 
useless to do more than merely present a statement of the more important 
statistics of the Department. Considerations of economy, therefore, as well 
as the fact that suggestions made in previous reports, seem to have had little 
if any good results, induce me to present simply the following as prepared 
by Mr. George Beanston, Secretary of the Board of Education.
